The classic Ushpalao dish from Bukharian cuisine (also known as plov) is usually prepared on a rice base as a long-cooked stew with beef or lamb.

Olga Tuchsher from the secret ingredient blog, turns it into a light and nutritious vegetarian meal that is easily prepared.

She replaces the traditional rice in the dish with a well-seasoned burgul with carrots, chickpeas, fried onions and, if you like, raisins that add a subtle sweetness, and the result is a vegetarian, delicious and unusual osprey.

Suitable for dinner or lunch, easy to pack and take to work and can also be used as a tasty and different addition to family meals

Interesting to know:

The popular burgul in Mediterranean kitchens, made from whole wheat, shredded after cooking and drying in special ovens.

Burgul is rich in B vitamins and also minerals such as calcium and iron.

It is great in salads like the famous tabbouleh salad, used as a base for the traditional majdara.
